Ascent Accomodations

The Hostel

ASCENT OF SAFED was founded in 1983. It has been located since 1990 in a former hotel building in the picturesque old city of Tsfat. It contains 31 rooms and 75 beds. Just in the last year or two there have been significant renovations and additions to the above. Read about them and see photos here.


In the summer, breakfast is provided daily. During the rest of the year, food is served only on Shabbat and during the special monthly seminars, or catered by special arrangement.


During the summer, walking tours of Tsfat, hikes in the Galilee, and van tours of the Golan Heights are offered a few times a week, including several for free. During the rest of the year, they take place during seminars and by pre-arrangement for groups of six or more.

Shabbat Hospitality

Before each Shabbat and major Jewish Holiday, it is possible, by pre-arrangement, to be a guest for the festive evening and morning meals with friendly, English-speaking local families. The Third Meal is enjoyed together at Ascent by all the guests and members of the Ascent staff. Please bring appropriate clothing for shuls and for meals with families.
